Obviously I got some stuff. :)
Large frames, 2x3, 2 matching ones for $2.50 each. These are going to go over the couch.
Lovely picture of a farm (lol this IS Kentucky). $3.50, it's hard to tell in the picture, but it's about 2 foot by 3 foot. I'm planning on painting over the farm with chalkboard paint for the kitchen.
Blurry kitten and a LARGE laundry basket. He's jumping in this photo. $3.50
(I'm sure this is what the vet wanted when he told us to keep him confined right?)
Ferris Wheel - $1, Map - $1, Dictionary - $2.50, book of Paris prints - .50 cents
The ferris wheel thing is cool. I usually never like any of the accessories Goodwill has. I don't think Welcome Geese or ceramic kittens would look good in my house. But I think the ferris wheel spray painted oil rubbed bronze would look quirky.
The map will be wall art somewhere. Rob and I both love maps :)
The dictionary is because I wanted some largish book pages for some crafts.
The book at the bottom is a reproduction of a book of sketches done by Henri Rivire. There are 36 prints and they all feature Paris at the turn of the century (1902).
The colors will go great in the living room (gold, grays and blacks). I plan on putting them in 8 x 10 frames and doing a 4 x 4 symmetrical gallery wall behind the dining room table. Like this,
This find will probably gross out some of you, sorry! These are queen sized Martha Stewert 100% egyptian cotton sheets. I couldn't pass them up for $2.50! Look at the trim on the top! Obviously I'm going to bleach the heck out of them and wash them on super high heat to kill the cooties. Then make my guests sleep on them. Muahaha.
Office chairs! They were $3.50 each :)
We needed matching chairs for the breakfast table in the kitchen. I was planning on using Ikea wicker chairs til I found these, much better than $60. They look horrible now (the right one looks like it might have a throw up stain?! ha), but we've had great luck with office chairs so far. They're 100% wood and completely sturdy. Once I rip that god awful magenta fabric out and replace it with a more neutral fabric they should look 10x better.
I'm not sure yet what to do with the frame. It's wooden so maybe I should sand it back and danish oil it up? Or just paint?
Also, that's a sneak peek to the new living room color. ;) Full details when we're done painting it!
I liked the wheels, they're a bit silly as its going on tile floor but I don't care! I could always steal them and use them elsewhere.
(There is no natural light in our kitchen, hence the odd lighting, sorry!)
I know it's hard, but imagine the table painted white (honeymilk), the chairs reupholstered, the wall painted and that god awful grout kicked to the curb. It will all get better soon.
